    Not much better now, with every other TV show a crime drama and most movies of the "Action" genre. Why do Americans love watching people being killed?
    Art following life, or life following art?
    30,000 gun deaths PA give plenty of plot ideas………… if an 'action' film needs a plot beyond that?

    John Wayne never had no chin string, neither.

    I haven't watched a western for so long that Tim Holt may have been the last one I saw…….

    As an English boy in the late Fifties and early sixties the “Wild West” wasn’t “real”. It wasn’t meant to be real. It was always fantasyland. We played “Cowboys and Indians” with cap guns with much enthusiasm. But of course the place didn’t really exist. The scenery was just impossible.

    There were black and white western serials, and almost every week, regardless of the story the same position for an ambush, and the same rock outcrop where the villian was caught appeared.

    How about Sharon Stone in The Quick and The Dead?

    yeah - he was awesome as Josh Randell.

    Tom Horn along with Sand Pebbles could be some of his greatest work.

    Anton, the scariest cowboy ever, is a shadow in this world.

    Someone who is good but doesn’t at first seem like he would be a good cowboy is:
    Fred Macmurray.

    I really like this one of his:

    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.
